Apollo (Island Alpaca Apollo's Victory)

Apollo's Victory came to us in 2007 and shows much promise as a herd sire... He had a smooth entry into the world; up on his feet within 20 minutes and nursing within one hour! His IgG level was positive as a result: 2200.


His fleece has been showing an increasing amount of luster and staple as he grows. Note the histogram above, revealing 19.5 micron - very respectable for a darker colored animal!


Apollo also has a very notable sire... Royal Peruvian Eros, with has lots of big names in his pedigree, including Royal Peruvian Apollo and Royal Fawn.


Island Alpaca would like to retain two future breedings.

Mustang Sally

ARI#: 817849

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Dark Brown

Sally is an amazing young female and one of the most attentive moms on the farm.

Along with a very pleasing but shy personality she has very soft fine dense fiber terrific coverage and a beautiful face. Her sire, Alacante, son Pperuvian Camilio, is a multiple blue ribbon winner, and has been quoted as having fleece like a rug.

In 2005 Sally has blessed us with Pietro, a male, with incredible fineness; he was 18.5 Micron at 1-1/2 years old and just at 21.5 at nearly three years of age! With incredible luster and very high frequency crimp Pietro is abundantly covered with this fine fiber from his top-knot to his toes. He adds tremendous fineness to his offspring, as did Mustang Sally with him! 

Sally gave us Apollo's Victory, whose sire was the Royal Peruvian Eros, who again, has been proven to be, yet another fine, lustrous gentleman.

Her 2010 cria, equally impressive results: Estrada's Seina, with a micron in the 17's. If you like browns, she is your girl!

Please note, Sally herself took a third place ribbon in a strong class at the New England Coastal Classic.
